Week 6/8 of Learn Ruby the Hard Way
We started a Summer reading sprint from Women Who Code & SF Ruby Book Club. This is the Week6 of the Summer reading sprint. So if you dont have plans this is a best way to immerse yourself in Ruby Language. The book is available for free online. You will need Ruby and Rails installed on your computer and a terminal to work on this sprint. But if you didnt get them installed you can do it using the instructions http://installfest.railsbridge.org/installfest/
Beginners can start the install process:
http://tryruby.org/ and http://www.codecademy.com/tracks/ruby
Can work through tutorials like Learn to Program, http://rubykoans.com/ and http://ruby.railstutorial.org/
